WE BRING THE TROPICS TO YOU!
In 1970, we
began with a backyard wholesale fruit and palm nursery in Homestead, Florida
Since 1970. Over the years growing has been our obsession, sharing our love of
palms and other tropical plants with many others,today, we are growing
subtropical and cold hardy palms and other selected plants in central Florida.
We grow most of our plants from seed ourselves. We start with fresh seed
originating from knowledgeable collectors around the world, and many from
properly identified local plants. We are always experimenting with many new
palms, looking for plants suitable for growing conditions in the subtropical and
temperate climates of the U.S. We have grown many exotic and native palms and
other tropical plants in South Florida, The metro Atlanta Georgia piedmont area,
and the coastal central Florida area. Many growers pamper their product and
“soft grow” them prior to sale. These plants often suffer dramatic set-back when
planted out in the elements.
Our intent is to produce strong, healthy landscape plants rather than a green house ornamental. After seed is germinated, and plants are rooted 1st and 2nd year, we grow our plants out doors with minimal protection as much as is possible to provide strong plants suitable for immediate transplant in the ground. Our plants are shipped in the containers with root-ball intact. Bare-rooting plants and breaking the intimate bond of roots to soil elements is often a setback they cannot overcome. We believe that enduring gardens start with healthy, hardy plants. We are committed to providing our customers properly identified, healthy, strong plants and good customer service.
